You'd think to jump for a shimmer bronzer in the summer, but a matte bronzer provides the natural glow to look like you're actually tan as opposed to wearing a shiny product. This gives your skin the actually beachy look as opposed to the 'I'm trying to look beachy' cakey bronzed appearance. Dust a slight amount on the highest points on your face where the sun would hit, as well as your neck, shoulders and decollete to appear tanner!
Add the shimmer with your blush! 'Lovejoy' by NARS used as a blush contour is GORGEOUS in the summer- the shade itself is a tawny bronze, only a shade up from a bronzer. It's a slight flush with a tiny bit of shimmer to give you that natural, sunkissed finish.
This sheer red gloss by Ultraflesh plumps your lips (without pain!) and adds a sheer tint that looks great in the sun. It's moisturizing, which is a BIG plus in the summer (your lips are already drying out from the heat- you can replenish them with the gloss! Like a chapstick and color combined in one)
Dry Shampoo is a year round must, but ESPECIALLY in the summer! Most days I want to get up and get outside- this powder makes your hair look first day fresh without multiple steps. This is also a GREAT product for colored blondes who can't make it to the salon- it lightens your dark roots!
Lancome Effacernes concealer is great because it's waterproof- meaning sweatproof as well! It won't look as if it has faded from your face after an hour in the sunshine!
I love matte foundations- boots no 7 has been my favorite find this year! You might not automatically think matte is a good idea in the summer- but why add any shine to your face with a dewy moisturizer when you're going to be out in the heat? I like to stay matte and only add shimmer where I want it as opposed to looking like I'm sweating the moment I step out of the house!
Finally, this liquid liner by L'oreal is amazing for summer! SO many of you recommended this to me, && I'm so thankful you did! It's got AMAZING staying power && has yet to smudge on me!
